Elrod’s Cirque

*A gravel grinder set in the southern Flint Hills of Kansas, starting and ending in downtown Winfield, with 16, 61, and 121 mile route options. Part of the Boneshaker Gravel Series.

Elrod’s Cirque offers three route options:

  • Tibet Hill Loop: approximately 16 miles
  • Elrod’s Cirque: approximately 62 miles
  • Elrod’s Cirque on Steroids: approximately 121 miles

The 16 miler is for those new to cycling and gravel grinding. It will have all the scenery and challenge of the longer courses but in a bite-size package. Course features include a low-water bridge, wooded clear creeks, the legendary Tibet Hill, tall grass prairie with wildflowers, and a stone arch bridge from the late 1800’s.

The 62 and 121 mile courses are self-supported and for experienced gravel grinders. There will be a convenience store at just over halfway in Dexter KS, and a possible second sag tent starting the second lap of the 121 mile course … but don’t bank on it! The longer courses are exactly what endurance gravel grinders seek out.

Elrod’s Cirque is not a race, but is a full-on challenge. That said; if you want to hammer go right ahead. If you want to stop and smell the wildflowers go right ahead. There are for that matter over 800 different kinds of wildflowers and a peak time to view them is mid-May thru June. You choose how you want to ride.

This event is part of the Boneshaker Gravel Series.
